Weather models are showing that rain showers are possible for local areas along the North Coast starting around 5:00 a.m. Monday. It's possible much of the rain showers will stay north of San Luis Obispo throughout the morning and into the afternoon. As for the Central Coast and South Coast regions, rain shower chances will actually be lighter but cloud cover will increase by Monday night.

Rainfall potential will vary from Monday to Tuesday. Areas closer to the coast could receive 0.25''-0.5'' but rainfall totals for the mountains and foothills could range from 1-3.'' Tuesday will be fairly dry throughout the morning and afternoon hours before more rain will move into the area from Tuesday night through Wednesday. Dry conditions will be back in the forecast for Thursday, but this all ahead of more rain Friday through Saturday.

Maximum daytime highs will be right around the low to mid-60s for the coastal valleys and upper 50s for the inland valleys and beaches Monday. Southerly winds could be pretty gusty throughout the morning, ranging from 20-30 miles per hour. These 20-30 mph winds will impact vessels off the coast of San Luis Obispo County, as a gale warning has been issued for that area through 9:00 a.m.
